Spotlight Mix: Reuben Keeney
It’s hard to believe Reuben Keeney is still only 24 years old.
The Irish DJ / producer is already a fixture on the underground dance music scene. His versatile approach and intuitive skill has won fans and supporters across the dance music spectrum. Carl Cox to Roger Sanchez, The Magician to Nic Fanciulli, Tiesto to Laidback Luke have all given his productions the stamp of approval. As a teenager his first single ‘Coming Up’ was signed up by Rhythm Masters Steve Mac and played incessantly by the likes of Sasha and John Digweed. Releases with the likes of Cr2, Toolroom and Vicious followed.
But in 2017 he has really begun to hit his stride as a recording artist. The Paradise Garage referencing ‘Larry’ is an instant head turner; signed to Marshall Jefferson’s own Freakin’909 imprint. This was quickly followed by a fast blossoming association with the Eton Messy / Blonde Crew. ‘Take Me Higher / Carry On’ is set for an EP release on Blonde’s own label Nightbeast. ‘Fragments’ is also set for release on UK powerhouse label Toolroom later in 2017.
He also runs and promotes a monthly night in his native Letterkenny ‘Outhouse’ – showcasing darker, dirtier, tracky house. As if all that wasn’t enough it’s also recently evolved into a new production alias.
